Fabric Options

Hover over the color swatch to see the fabric & color.

EPX is the first ever durable bag ripstop made with 100% recycled polyester fiber. It's highly water resistant with a waterproof laminate face fabric. It's suitable for every day use in commuting, on the trail and on bike. 

1000d is virgin ballistic nylon. It's very durable, suitable for withstanding years of tough activities. It is DWR coated and will keep stuff dry in light showers.

Recycled 1200d Fabric is an all new recycled Cordura fabric made from post-industrial waste. Similar to 1000d, it's very durable and abrasion resistant - plus it's made with recycled fiber!

Please note that EPX Ocean and all 1000d and 1200d fabrics come with a bright yellow lining material
